Is HTTPS/SSL must for SOLMAN 7.1 SPS13 ?

Dear Experts,

We are building a SOLMAN System for POC and we have run into an issue with post implementation step.

We tried to configure SOLMAN ie (solman_setup) and it doesn't get pass the logon screen.

Initially it threw error that SSO not possible as HTTPS not configured.

Through SCN blogs, I made sure that we don't get those errors anymore.

Now, although we don't get HTTPS warning, but still it doesn't go beyond the (solman_setup) logon screen.

I have already activated the necessary solman webdynpro services.

Its a freshly build system and SGEN has already completed successfully.

Now my suspicion is that SOLMAN SPS13 needs HTTPS connection ? But I want to get it confirmed or if there is a workaround available for my problem.

I hope, you would have already got that I don't need highly secure HTTPS setup in my SOLMAN, as what the implelemtation guide suggests.

Also, when I checked for my other solman 7.1 SPS4, there everything is working fine on HTTP connection.

    I would like to add that even when i am trying to access the url with http, by default its taking me to https. i have done the https configuration too.

    No Logs in the system at all.

    for example, if below is my actual link.


    I replace https to http and port number


    Still the url processed is this only. As if http is totally not allowed. Hence is raising my suspicion.

    • just did no success in logging in even after disabling https.

      basically it seems the logon is not working to solman_setup or like solman_setup is not functional at all.

      to reiterate :- here is what all i have done

      1. SOLMAN install

      2. Sysgen

      Is there some service which i need to activate to make solman_setup functional properly ?

      copied id and created a demo id too, still no success.
